OTTAWA - Dozens of Canada Revenue Agency employees are sanctioned every year for browsing porn sites, consulting colleagues' and relatives' tax files or transmitting confidential information.

QMI Agency uncovered the details in documents obtained though access to information.

Over five years beginning in 2006, 927 misconduct cases were logged in CRA offices across the country. That works out to nearly 200 cases per year.

Most cases involve misuse of government property or access to confidential taxpayer information.
